From Raccolta #37:

A Hymn in honor of the 

Precious Blood of Jesus

Glory be to Jesus!

Who in bitter pains

Pour'd for me the life-blood

From His sacred veins.

Grace and life eternal

In that Blood I find;

Bless'd be His compassion,

Infinitely kind!

Blessed through endless ages

Be the precious stream,

Which from endless torment

Doth the world redeem.

There the fainting spirit

Drinks of life her fill,

There, as in a fountain,

Laves herself at will.

Oh the Blood of Christ!

It soothes the Father's ire;

Opens the gate of heaven,

Quells eternal fire.

Abel's blood for vengeance

Pleaded to the skies;

But the Blood of Jesus

For our pardon cries.

Oft as it is sprinkled

On our guilty hearts,

Satan in confusion

Terror-struck departs.

Oft as earth exulting

Wafts its praise on high,

Hell with terror trembles,

Heaven is filled with joy.

Lift ye, then your voices,

Swell the mighty flood;

Louder still and louder,

Praise the Precious Blood!
